Obscurity of the Day: Saga of Steve West
Saga of Steve West is written and drawn in the style of Oliver's Adventures, Bobby Thatcher and other 'boy wanderer' features, but with an older protagonist. Steve seemed to be in his late teens or early twenties. Wish I could tell you more about the plot, but beyond these isolated examples from Cole Johnson I've only seen the strip in my own very small collection of Graphics, and there seems to be a dearth of expository dialogue to get us, um, occasional readers, up to speed.
Saga of Steve West began on November 12 1928 (based on strip numbering of later strips), and ended either in late September or the first week of October 1929.
Archibald later became a rather prolific pulp writer, and in the late 1940s, he became a comic book editor.Post a Comment
